AUUUGGGGHHHHHHHH }:-) }:-) }:-) }:-) }:-)

Some of us drink whiskey at this hour of the night. I looked Anchovio up on sportsline and couldnt find him. As the article implied he was already on their MLB roster I was .0000000000000000000000009 of a millisecond away from notifying the commissioner of my money league that I had dibbs on him..............

Then I double checked this thread to read all of it, as I had only read the first post, in order to get his name correct etc....... And realized that I'd been had :~( :~( :~(

Happy April fools and yeah you got me, but that just wasnt funny :-° :-°

Had it happened to any of my other fantast buddies I must admit that it would have been funny :-D :-D

Good one Xeifrank ;-D !

Anchovio is nothing, they got this OF Pepperonio and 2B Mushroomio that are going to be All-Stars for years to come.

Sorry guys, but it's a real story! I guess I should've posted the Sportingnews link.

So, the Dodgers didn't sign a SS?

Best april fools day joke so far. I admit you didn't get me, basically because I never heard of Italian baseball players. But well done nevertheless.
